Thanksgiving is not for off glvo it a trial: Select a firm, pumpkin (not too largo), as It Is apt to be of finer grain and better flavor than a d softer ono. Cut Into strips, peel and removo all seeds and stringy substances. Cut Into pieces and placo in a deep agate or stone sauce pan; cover with cold water, add a pinch of salt; cover and cook threo hours, stirring occasionally. Then removo the saucepan to tho back of the stove, removo cover and simmer four or five hours, stirring every twenty or thirty minutes, until the pumpkin is dry and of a rich color, soft while hot. Tha process of cooking requires the greater part ot a day. In the morning make a rather rich pastry, as pumpkin absorbs tho lard more than squash or custard filling. Take ono heaping cup ot tho prepared pumpkin, add one egg, ono scant teaspoonful of cinnamon and ginger, a pinch of salt, put two tablespoons of molasses in a cup and till tho cup with granulated Bugar; mix thoroughly together and add ono pint ot rich milk. Bake In a rather hot oven until tho pastry becomes firm, then cool the oven to medium and bake ono hour, being careful that the mixturo does not boll, as It spoils the texture ofthe pio.

When I return I hope to give positive evidence of tills." Undoubtedly Prince Ito Intended to inaugurate and enforco a distinct policy In .Manchuria, Imt the exact nature of this was not disclosed.

The entire nation is in mourning, the flags of tho foreign embassies have been placed at halfmast, while all public and many private functions have been aban doned. The Japanese and foreign news papers appear with black borders. Only the death of the emperor could arouse similar demonstrations of sympathy. Perhaps Prince Ito' death causes more universal sincerity and grief because he was Idolized by the masses as the great counsellor of the elder statesmen, tho creator of the cabinet and the friend of the emperor himself.

The steamship Disa, just In from Frontcra, Mexico, reports having witnessed an and terrifying phenomenon when about 150 miles north of the Mexican coast In tha gulf of Mexico on Oct. 21. Whether it was a shaft of fire or light from heaven or from the gulf, those who experienced it could not tell. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon storm clouds made the day dark a night. A half mile ahead appeared the wide band of Are or light, xtending from sky to water nnd nhout x quarter of a mile wide. In tho heuv ens the light reflected the mountain of surging black clouds, while the sea boiled. The crew begged the captain to turn back, and all stood paralyzed with fright as the vessel entered the brilliantly il luminated area. It was light enough to read a paper on deck, and the sea was a dead calm, while the water was boiling hot. The fire pond was marked as clear a n veil, and immediately after passing beyond it the vessel entered a raging tea, running mountainous waves and tha water cold. STEEL Shows an DIVIDEND GROWING .

An Illusion Somewhere, 'The Idea," we say to our heavy-se- t friend. "Tho Ideal Why, you weigh fully 300 pounds, yet you fold your bands with calm philosophy and tell us It Is merely a mental state, that you aro slender and lithe. In other words, you Imagine you are thin. Bosh!" "Ah, you poor, misguided one," he breathos, placidly. '.'Alas, you are laboring under the delusion that you see the flesh which onco was my mental error. You should take a mental vibration before each meal and on going to bed." Dumbly wondering whether or not tho trueness of an Impression Is to be verlDed by the actuality of a conclusion, we regard him with the dubious gaze of one whoso subllmental mental processes havo begun to sizzle. The suit is made from blue serge and is quite stylish, having a natty air, not too conventional, nor yet loud. It is what you might call 'smart' or 'snappy.' This is a suit we'd urge you to buy if it was our practice to urge customers. But if you will come in, examine it and other suits, we'll do no urging try them on and make up your own mind. The price is very reasonable. Consider not only the style and the fit, but the quality, which is an inherent part of all numbers in the " Palmer Garment " line. o Col.
